Like many of you reading this article, I was also one of those kids that was absolutely determined to be a Veterinarian when I grew up. Throughout high school, I took many AP classes and studied really hard for the SAT to help get in to a good college.
You have heard that it is nearly impossible to get into veterinary school. But, what odds are you looking at? Have you already been accepted? If so, Congratulations!
Earlier this week I returned to the scene of the crime…18 years ago 😱, I sat in the same classroom as a young, fresh-faced veterinary student full of hope and overwhelmed at the sheer volume of information I needed to cram into my brain.
Let’s say for a moment that you decide to abandon this whole veterinary medicine thing and try to focus on a different career path. I mean, instead of going through vet school, save all of that money and focus on a more reasonable vocational aspiration: a great orator of Ancient Rome. Sounds perfect!
